    Tools That are Made in The USA

    Tools That are Made in The USA

    The demand for Made in the USA Products is growing larger by the day.  We as Americans need to support our companies that are making products  here in the United States, especially right now.

    Our country is facing the worst economic conditions since The Great  Depression. Some economist are even calling this “The Greater  Depression”. Our country’s economy needs a boost and will for many years  to come. Let’s buy Made in the USA products to help out all we can!

    Check out the Blog Post that goes along with the podcast. Tools That Are Made in The USA . 

    How Can I Tell if a Tool is Made in the USA?
    Be sure to observe the way products are labeled. “Made in the USA” and “Assembled in the USA” are two very different phrases and should be treated as such.

    Many manufacturers will use the “assembled” label to indicate where  the product was put together, failing to notify customers that the bulk  of the product was constructed elsewhere. This label can only be used on  products that were “substantially transformed” on arrival in the US,  which means that when you buy from these companies, you’ll still be  supporting American jobs.

    Also, there’s a difference between “Made in America” and “Made in the  USA”. “Made in America” does not exclude products made in Mexico or  Canada, whereas “Made in the USA” guarantees that it was produced right  here.
